When Amendments Amount to Nothing

Following on from the successful open letter on the dogs dinner that was the section 75 regulations - see my other entry below - the amended regulations have been released.

It isn't good news. The coalition may have changed the wording but the original intention remains. Local commissioners will in effect be forced to put services out to competitive tender in order to prevent legal challenges from companies wishing to muscle in on NHS contracts.

I have decided to launch a second open letter and get as many signatures as possible to pressurise the coalition and let them know that the public DO NOT wish their NHS to be franchised out and sold off to the highest bidder.

You can find my letter HERE and I would urge you to read it and sign it if you agree with its sentiments.

Thank you.
